Mackie Bobo-White asks us to share a few highlights from our Bedias Museum and Library programs.
“We have over 100 new movies (DVD) and many new children's books. We also have computers that everyone can use free of charge or you can come bring your own computer and use our Wi-Fi free. We have copy services, and a wide range of hard back and paperback books, both fiction and non-fiction. We have your favorite authors such as WEB Griffin, James Patterson, Janet Evanavich, Jonothan Keller, Louis L'Amour and many more. Or if you just need a quiet place to work or read, come check us out! There are also many opportunities to help out by volunteering. The Library/Museum is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 12 noon to 5 p.m., and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Come and use this treasure right here in Bedias.”
